Forget the pricetag, I'm waiting for the video of this new "super tank."It will be interesting to see the price tag. More and more it gets more suspicious about weapons from Russia, especially after the test result between Arjun and T90. Maybe I am biased. But the curve of Russia's arm development is really not giving the impression of heading up.
Russia knows the T-90 is obsolete and has been looking for a new tank since before its induction. The T-90 was a budgetary compromise that had to be made because an FX tank wasn't affordable. It took the best of T-72 and T-80 and put that into one, but nothing new. Russia always planned to stop T-90 once the FX tank hit production. It has just been their terrible economics and corruption that have stopped it.So it means russian army rejected T90 and looking for new super tank T95
The main victim is the mysterious Object 195 program that was aimed to develop a new generation main battle tank to replace existing T-80 and T-90 tanks in the Russian Army. The new tank also dubbed T-95 has been developed by Nizhny Tagil Uralvagonzavod armor manufacturer in complete secrecy for more than 15 years. Popovkin said the military will focus on modernization of the T-90 instead.
Doesn't look very credible to me. BMD-4 and Sprut are already in production.don't know how credible this news is but:
Just found something more authoritative.Doesn't look very credible to me. BMD-4 and Sprut are already in production.
